November 2019 Hot Flashes

National Bladder Awareness Month

It's time to speak out about bladder health conditions, such as incontinence, and urge everyone to take notice of their bladder health and do something to improve it. Over 25 million Americans live with incontinence each day, but it's a condition that too often gets swept under the rug. This information can be left out of pertinent doctor/patient discussions due to embarrassment.

The truth is, this is a hard subject for most. Let's face it; incontinence is not something most people want to talk about around the dinner table. Most women wait at least seven years before even speaking with a doctor about incontinence. People hide incontinence from their friends, family, and also their significant other. It limits people's lives and how they interact with each other – fear of having an accident takes precedence over time with friends, family, and even work.

This month take charge of your bladder health and incontinence by taking some actionable steps toward managing your condition. The best thing you can do first is to talk to SOMEONE about it!
